Prague - Cesky Krumlov
Český Krumlov, in Bohemia’s deep south, is one of the most picturesque towns in Europe. It’s a little like Prague in miniature – a Unesco World Heritage Site with a stunning castle above the Vltava River, an old town square, Renaissance and baroque architecture.
Most of the architecture of the old town and castle dates from the 14th through 17th centuries. The core of the old town is within a horseshoe bend of the river, with the old Latrán neighborhood and castle on the other side of the Vltava.
Český Krumlov hosts a number of festivals and other events each year including the Five-Petaled Rose Festival, which is held on the summer solstice weekend. The downtown area is turned into a medieval town with craftsmen, artists, musicians, and local people in medieval costume. Activities include jousting, fencing, historical dance performances, and folk theater, in the Castle precincts and along the river. It concludes with a fireworks display.
The International Music Festival Cesky Krumlov begins in July and ends in August, and features international music of various genres. Other such events are held throughout the year. The summer music festivals include the blues, rock, and soul festival Open Air Krumlov, held in late June at Eggenberg Brewery Garden.
Český Krumlov, a medieval town in South Bohemia, retains its fairytale-like atmosphere to these days.
During the visit of Český Krumlov you have the opportunity to see one of the most beautiful castles in the Czech Republic – Hluboká nad Vltavou. The castle is located close to Český Krumlov. This breathtaking castle looks like something snatched right out of a fairytale.
